ENZYME entry: EC 1.14.15.6

Accepted Name
Cholesterol monooxygenase (side-chain-cleaving).
Alternative Name(s)
Cholesterol 20-22-desmolase.
Cholesterol C(20-22) desmolase.
Cholesterol desmolase.
Cholesterol side-chain cleavage enzyme.
Cholesterol side-chain-cleaving enzyme.
CYP11A1.
Cytochrome P-450(scc).
Cytochrome p450(scc).
Steroid 20-22 desmolase.
Steroid 20-22-lyase.
Reaction catalysed
Cholesterol + 6 reduced adrenodoxin + 3 O(2) + 6 H(+) <=> pregnenolone + 4-methylpentanal + 6 oxidized adrenodoxin + 4 H(2)O
Cofactor(s)
Heme-thiolate.
Comment(s)
  • The reaction proceeds in three stages, with two hydroxylations at C-22 and C-20 preceding scission of the side-chain between carbons 20 and 22.
  • The initial source of the electrons is NADPH, which transfers the electrons to the adrenodoxin via EC 1.18.1.6.
